Meet Our People
Linda Mahoney is the founder and chairman of Betterhomes LLC. She grew up in Montreal, Canada and embarked on a career as a registered nurse. In 1981, she moved to the UAE to set up a surgical clinic. Seeing the need for a property agency to help expats in Dubai find places to live, she left medicine behind after 25 years and in 1986, Linda established Betterhomes, a business that would grow into the leading real estate agency in the UAE.
